The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the company’s highest decision-making body. All shareholders have an opportunity at the AGM to influence the company by exercising their voting rights. Each Class A share represents ten votes and each Class b share represents one vote.
Mandatory tasks at the AGM include adopting the balance sheet and income statement, as well as handling the results for the year. The AGM also decides on remuneration principles for senior executives and on discharge from liability for the board members and the CEO. Following proposals from the Nomination Committee, the AGM elects board members up until the end of the next AGM. The Articles of Association may be amended by a resolution at the AGM in accordance with the rules set out in the Swedish Companies Act.
